Doll Craft – How to Make Doll Sized Cake Pops

doll craft how to make doll sized cake pops

Today’s post has been inspired by all the wonderful cake pops I have been seeing in the holiday magazines. I thought they would be fun and easy to make for our dolls.  This is an easy craft – with one trip to the dollar store and less than $3, you can create enough Dolly cake pops for your dolls and your dolls friends!

The supplies you need to make the doll sized cake pops are:

  • Small White Styrofoam balls (my dollar store sold a multi pack so I bought it and will use the other ones for a craft in the future!)
  • Glitter Glue
  • Tooth picks
  • *Some floral foam, egg carton or cardboard box to put your cake pops in to dry, small hair elastics for the dolls to hold their cake pops

Step 1– Push one end of your toothpick into one of the small styrofoam balls

Step 2– Continue until you make as many as you need (or have supplies for)

Step 3– Decorate your cake balls! I started at the top and twirled the toothpick while I put the glitter glue on. There is no wrong way to make these, you can add more than one color, cover the entire ball or just swirl like I did.

Step 4– Continue to decorate your other Dolly cake pops, then push the other end of the toothpick into some floral foam or into a foam egg carton to dry. I let mine dry over night, but about 4 hours is enough drying time.

Step 5– Use small clear elastics to help your doll hold her cake pop. My toothpicks were pointy on both ends so if you would like you can trim the pointy part off, or leave it as is.

I made mine in holiday colors red, green for Christmas,  blue and silver  for Hanukkah but you can use any color you would like to create holiday pops for your dolls in the holiday colors you celebrate. Pink and purple would also look great for Valentine’s Day or an everyday doll party

Today the dolls I used were:

  • Ruthie American Girl Doll
  • Olivia Springfield Doll
  • Arianna Harmony Club Doll
  • Stacy my Maplelea Friend Doll
  • Dolls are sitting in the chair and couch I made  in my Stylish Seat post 
  • Dolls are photographed in my Yellow Historical American Doll Room 

 I look forward to sharing more craft ideas with you next week.

  8. Love this craft thank you

  9. Great craft! My dolls would love some cake pops! :)

  10. Pretty Irish AG says:

    Can we also use fabric paint as “Icing” to pipe on designs?

  11. I’m sure you could. Puff paint would work too.

  12. Wonderful ladies I like the idea of the fabric paint too! I can not wait to here what you make!

  13. This is so cute! Karen, do you think you could do a holiday meal craft? That would be really cool. I just now realized how much Elen (#33) looks like Merida. I am watching Brave now.

  14. Cool!

  15. Holiday meal craft is on my list too Vivienne! Working on it now!

  16. Pretty Irish AG says:

    @Vivienne, could you give me a review on Number 33? I want to get her and name her Maia

  17. Pretty Irish Ag- #33 is wonderful! if you know how to take care of curly hair than it is easier to manage. Her hair does become wavy after brushing it, but if you just twist it then it should become curly again. If you want to get her I totally reccomend her!

  18. Pretty Irish AG says:

    I was going to get #33 for a good grade gift for myself but she was out of stock. So I got Julie instead

  21. Pretty Irish AG says:

    I also thought about painting the Styrofoam balls to look like a cake. I could also coat the top half in glue and roll it in a plate full of seed beads

  22. Iris+McKenna says:

    Oh this is too cute! I’m going to make these lol 😉 Thats a good idea to use puff paint! I’ll try that.

    Pretty Iris AG ~ OMG #33 out of stock?!?! That’s terrible. I hope she wont be out of stock for long.

  23. I have never thought of this idea! Thank you so much Karen for this inspirational post! Hmm… I think I need to check the dollar store soon… :)

  24. ok now that is the cutest thing EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now if i only had styrofoam balls i would be accoupied,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  25. Soo Cute!!

  26. Love this!

  27. Are Journey Girls slim bodied? PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!

  28. Pretty Irish AG says:

    @Iris+McKenna, she was out of stock in August at the Seattle Store

  29. Amanda – yes Journey Girls are slim bodied. They can wear some AG clothes but AGs can not wear Journey Girls clothes

  30. I think you should do another 100 days of doll play. I thought it was a lot of fun! I really enjoyed it.

  31. This craft looks like fun to make!

  32. How cute! These will be a PERFECT craft project for my daughter during Christmas break!! Thanks!
